HOW LOX INJECTION WORKS

Lox 2% Adrenaline Injection is a combination of two medicines: Lidoacaine and Epinephrine. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic which works by blocking pain signals from the nerves to brain thereby decreasing the sensation of pain. Adrenaline is a vasoconstrictor which tightens the blood vessels to slow the dispersal, and thereby prolong the effect of Lidocaine. Together, they numb the area effectively and allow medical procedures/surgeries to be performed without pain.
